In the area of Brand-Protection it is crucial to identify the network between and behind illicit traders.
This can be done by collecting, structuring and analyzing all investigation results in a dedicated Database on a regular basis.
Information without clarity and connection is of no value. Identified information has to be set in logical connection. Then only links and connections can be analysed.
Graphical analysis is crucial to identify and to report organizational and criminal structures in the area of counterfeit trade and product piracy.
In connection with a database, link-analysis is the best way to present clear, based-on-facts, investigation- and intelligence-results.
